If fishing in Nadi is on your bucket list, look no further than Magnum Express Fiji. Your guide for the day is Captain Ilai, which means you’ll tap into years of knowledge and experience.

Species like Yellowfin Tuna, Skipjack Tuna, Dogtooth Tuna, Giant Trevally, Mahi Mahi, Sailfish, and more could be biting if conditions are right. On the day of your trip, you’re likely to troll. For the more adventurous among you, there’s spearfishing.

If you’re traveling with the family,  you will be glad to know that kids are welcome aboard! Children must wear life vests, so find out if the appropriate size is available on board. And, you can’t go wrong with snacks – luckily, Capt. Ilai will have some on board!

Your fishing machine for the day is a 26’ Mako center console with space for 10 passengers. It comes with all the essentials no fishing machine can run without. You’ll find rods, reels, and tackle waiting for you, along with lures.

It’s recommended to bring sunscreen (non-spray), a hat, and sunglasses. Drinks will be available for you. Alcohol is allowed in moderation, just avoid hard liquor as well as glass bottles. There will be food and some light snacks available on board.

Go ahead and treat yourself to a day on the water with Magnum Express Fiji.

Capt. Ilai runs trips out of Nadi aboard a 26’ Mako center console. These waters are known for GTs and Mahi Mahi and he will show you how to catch them, whether you're trolling or spearfishing. With years of experience, he has a trick or two up his sleeve, and the only way to learn is to join him out on the water!
